Speaking outside of his civil fraud trial on Wednesday, the former president attacked James, who is suing him, three of his children, and the Trump Organization for knowingly lying about company asset values to get better bank loans, insurance rates, and tax benefits.
His attack lacked historical accuracy.
James caused Exxon to shift its headquarters from New York to Texas, according to Trump.
“She should be criminally liable for this, she did this to Exxon,” Trump added. “They expelled Exxon from New York…They live in Texas.”
James was elected to the New York attorney general position 29 years after Exxon announced its move from New York in October 1989.
